The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is an organelle found in most eukaryotic cells, that forms an interconnected network of flattened, membrane-enclosed sacs or tubes. The ER has a central role in lipid and protein synthesis, protein chaperoning and folding, and calcium homeostasis.
DiOC6(3) (3,3′-Dihexyloxacarbocyanine Iodide) is a cell-permeant, green-fluorescent, lipophilic dye that is selective for the mitochondria of live cells, when used at low concentrations. At higher concentrations, the dye is selective to stain the endoplasmic reticulum.
